Nose

Explosively fruity aromas and flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plum tart are creamy and filled with rich savory and cooking spice accents. There are herbal notes reminiscent of green tea leaves, spices and berries.

Palate

Powerfully structured, showing dark chocolate and mocha on the finish, with hints of dried mint. The palate is serious and has chalky tannins, as they select grapes from places in the Valle de Uco that have limestone soils.
